Nevada Medical Marijuana Patient Processing Goes Online

Nevadans applying for a medical marijuana patient card will no longer have to wait through DMV lines or rely on snail mail to submit documents.

The Las Vegas Sun reports the application process is now available online after almost a year of negotiations between the Nevada Dispensary Association and state officials.

The change aims to help patients living in remote areas or with mobility concerns.

Now the required doctor’s recommendation is the only part of the application path not online.
